Two simultaneous car-bomb explosions Wednesday rocked the neighborhood of Baghdad's holiest Shi'ite Muslim shrine, killing at least seven people and wounding 25 others, police reported. One blast, from a parked car, struck al-Zahraa Square, an intersection just 500 meters from the large Kazimiya shrine, said a police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity. The second explosion, also from an unoccupied vehicle, occurred at the Aden intersection, at the western entrance to the Kazimiyah neighborhood.
